do you refrigerate in between? somebody told me to put used tea in the refrigerator overnight between brews because it's like a vegetable. this advice was not specific to puerh. just discovered "The Spice Lab" on Amazon.... so many pages of tea, many puerh.
It just sits on my counter...I probably should refrigerate, though. It's never been a problem, though. It's there for a couple days, 3 at most.

well, this must be a scene from the movie, Being There :tongue:

you're too late! My props are starting to dissolve... and I"m forgetting those ummon koans which I could recite so faithfully.

The essence of the rice cake story is about drinking tea or the pages from Amazon about the tea.... just as you imagined. :namaste: you nailed it bokki.

I'll add my edit from last post.... I read today about a man who requested a bible as his last meal before execution. he ate the whole thing. Sink into that heart opening.
